Northwest Passage

The arctic is melting, so much so that the famed "Northwest Passage" that so many explorers searched for in vain might finally become a reality.

Though I imagine that if the artic continues to melt down, we'll be too busy evacuating our coastal cities to take much advantage of it.

The glorious photograph above was taken off an island near Greenland by AP photographer John McConnico, who is a 1999 Pulitzer Prize winner.
